More about this product

Western Window Systems' Series 7950 Aluminum Bi-Fold Door is a solution for indoor-outdoor living in a variety of weather conditions. Designed for style and durability, it uses premium grade materials and has a flush sill option for a seamless transition from indoors to out.

Features

    For strength against the elements, the Series 7950 Bi-Fold Door delivers a design pressure (DP) rating of 50. A thin extrusion profile with a 5.875” frame depth supports triple-pane, laminated, and security glass — essential options for noise reduction as well as impact resistance.

Options - Top-Load Floor Tracks

Water Barrier Sill Sillwater Barrier | Western Window Systems Standard option: with a 2” water barrier sill to help safeguard against water intrusion. Finished to match the color of the frame.
Flush Sill Sill Flush | Western Window Systems For a smooth transition from the inside to the outdoors, the optional flush still lines up with most interior flooring and features an interior and exterior height of just 0.958”. Finished to match the color of the frame.

The flush sill may be less effective at preventing water penetration than the high-performance water barrier sill and may not be appropriate in all climates, conditions, and exposures.
